I grew up playing sports.  We played soccer, volleyball, t-ball, softball and basketball.  I played softball in high school (and until recently when I had hip surgery) and CYO basketball in high school too.

I am ALL FOR WOMEN'S' SPORTS.  Why?  Because it empowers women, it promotes physical activity and supports camaraderie.

However.

I saw that Legends Football League is coming to the Huntington Center and thought it was wrong.  Just so gross and wrong.  I have no issue with women's football or rugby or even roller derby (thought that wold be so fun to play), but this?  Football in your underwear?   What women sign on to play for this?  You are ok with playing basically naked?  I don't get it.

Plus who attends these events?    Guys like football.  Guys like women.  Do guys like women playing football???   I have way less of an issue with strip clubs.  Why?  Because they are not trying to be something they are not.  They are stripping.  They don't have a sign on the door saying "strippers" and when you get there they want to discuss bible passages with you.  They strip.  For money.  This is women playing football - oh, but you have to look pretty and wear a bikini. 

What do you think?

No.
